areas_and_lengths

arcgis.geometry.functions.areas_and_lengths(polygons, length_unit, area_unit, calculation_type, spatial_ref=4326, gis=None, future=False)

The areas_and_lengths function calculates areas and perimeter lengths for each Polygon specified in the input array.

Keys

Description

polygons

The array of Polygon whose areas and lengths are to be computed.

length_unit

The length unit in which the perimeters of polygons will be calculated. If calculation_type is planar, then length_unit can be any esriUnits constant (string or integer). If calculationType is not planar, then length_unit must be a linear esriUnits constant, such as esriSRUnit_Meter`(i.e. `9001`|`LengthUnits.METER) or esriSRUnit_SurveyMile`(i.e. `9035`|`LengthUnits.SURVEYMILE). If length_unit is not specified, the units are derived from spatial_ref. If spatial_ref is not specified as well, the units are in meters. For a list of valid units, see esriSRUnitType Constants and esriSRUnit2Type Constants.

area_unit

The area unit in which areas of polygons will be calculated. If calculation_type is planar, then area_unit can be any esriAreaUnits constant (dict or enum). If calculation_type is not planar, then area_unit must be a esriAreaUnits constant such as AreaUnits.SQUAREMETERS (i.e. {“areaUnit”: “esriSquareMeters”}) or AreaUnits.SQUAREMILES (i.e. {“areaUnit”: “esriSquareMiles”}). If area_unit is not specified, the units are derived from spatial_ref. If spatial_ref is not specified, then the units are in square meters. For a list of valid units, see esriAreaUnits Constants. The list of valid esriAreaUnits constants include, esriSquareInches | esriSquareFeet | esriSquareYards | esriAcres | esriSquareMiles | esriSquareMillimeters | esriSquareCentimeters | esriSquareDecimeters | esriSquareMeters | esriAres | esriHectares | esriSquareKilometers.

calculation_type

The type defined for the area and length calculation of the input geometries. The type can be one of the following values:

1. planar - Planar measurements use 2D Euclidean distance to calculate area and length. This should only be used if the area or length needs to be calculated in the given SpatialReference. Otherwise, use preserveShape.

2. geodesic - Use this type if you want to calculate an area or length using only the vertices of the Polygon and define the lines between the points as geodesic segments independent of the actual shape of the Polygon. A geodesic segment is the shortest path between two points on an ellipsoid.

3. preserveShape - This type calculates the area or length of the geometry on the surface of the Earth ellipsoid. The shape of the geometry in its coordinate system is preserved.

future

A required Boolean. This operation determines if the job is run asynchronously or not.

Keys

Description

polylines

The array of Polyline whose lengths are to be computed.

length_unit

The length unit in which the length of Polyline will be calculated. If calculation_type is planar, then length_unit can be any esriUnits constant. If lengthUnit is not specified, the units are derived from spatial_ref. If calculationType is not planar, then lengthUnit must be a linear esriUnits constant, such as esriSRUnit_Meter or esriSRUnit_SurveyMile. If length_unit is not specified, the units are meters. For a list of valid units, see esriSRUnitType Constants and esriSRUnit2Type Constant.

calculation_type

The type defined for the length calculation of the input geometries. The type can be one of the following values:

1. planar - Planar measurements use 2D Euclidean distance to calculate area and length. This should only be used if the area or length needs to be calculated in the given SpatialReference. Otherwise, use preserveShape.

2. geodesic - Use this type if you want to calculate an area or length using only the vertices of the Polygon and define the lines between the points as geodesic segments independent of the actual shape of the Polygon. A geodesic segment is the shortest path between two points on an ellipsoid.

3. preserveShape - This type calculates the area or length of the geometry on the surface of the Earth ellipsoid. The shape of the geometry in its coordinate system is preserved.

The offset function is performed on a Geometry service resource. This function constructs geometries that are offset from the given input geometries. If the offset parameter is positive, the constructed offset will be on the right side of the geometry. Left side offsets are constructed with negative parameters.

Note

Tracing the geometry from its first vertex to the last will give you a direction along the geometry. It is to the right and left perspective of this direction that the positive and negative parameters will dictate where the offset is constructed. In these terms, it is simple to infer where the offset of even horizontal geometries will be constructed.

Keys

Description

geometries

An array of Point, MultiPoint, Polyline, or Polygon objects. The structure of each geometry in the array is the same as the structure of the JSON geometry objects returned by the ArcGIS REST API.

offset_distance

Specifies the distance for constructing an offset based on the input geometries.

Note

If the offset_distance parameter is positive, the constructed offset will be on the right side of the curve. Left-side offsets are constructed with negative values.

offset_unit

A unit for offset distance. If a unit is not specified, the units are derived from spatial_ref.

offset_how

The offset_how parameter determines how outer corners between segments are handled. The three options are as follows:

  1. esriGeometryOffsetRounded - Rounds the corner between extended offsets.

  2. esriGeometryOffsetBevelled - Squares off the corner after a given ratio distance.

3. esriGeometryOffsetMitered - Attempts to allow extended offsets to naturally intersect, but if that intersection occurs too far from the corner, the corner is eventually bevelled off at a fixed distance.

bevel_ratio

bevel_ratio is multiplied by the offset_distance, and the result determines how far a mitered offset intersection can be located before it is bevelled. When mitered is specified, bevel_ratio is ignored and 10 is used internally. When bevelled is specified, 1.1 will be used if bevel_ratio is not specified. bevel_ratio is ignored for rounded offset.

simplify_result

if simplify_result is set to true, then self intersecting loops will be removed from the result offset geometries. The default is false.

spatial_ref

A SpatialReference of the input geometries Well-Known ID or JSON object

future

An optional Boolean. This operation determines if the job is run asynchronously or not.

>>> new_job = offset( geometries = [geom1,geom2,...],

relation

arcgis.geometry.functions.relation(geometries1, geometries2, spatial_ref, spatial_relation='esriGeometryRelationIntersection', relation_param='', gis=None, future=False)

The relation function is performed on a Geometry service resource. This function determines the pairs of geometries from the input geometry arrays that participate in the specified spatial relation. Both arrays are assumed to be in the spatial reference specified by spatial_ref, which is a required parameter. Geometry types cannot be mixed within an array.

Note

The relations are evaluated in 2D. In other words, z coordinates are not used.

Keys

Description

geometry1

The first array of Geometry objects to compute relations.

geometry2

The second array of Geometry objects to compute relations.

relation_param

The Shape Comparison Language string to be evaluated.

The to_geo_coordinate_string function is performed on a Geometry service resource. The function converts an array of xy-coordinates into well-known strings based on the conversion type and SpatialReference supplied by the User. Optional parameters are available for some conversion types. See from_geo_coordinate_strings for more information on the opposite conversion.

Note

If an optional parameter is not applicable for a particular conversion type, but a value is supplied for that parameter, the value will be ignored.

Keys

Description

spatial_ref

A SpatialReference of the input geometries Well-Known ID or JSON object

coordinates

An array of xy-coordinates in JSON format to be converted. Syntax: [[x1,y2],…[xN,yN]]

conversion-type

The conversion type of the input strings.

Note

Valid conversion types are: MGRS - Military Grid Reference System USNG - United States National Grid UTM - Universal Transverse Mercator GeoRef - World Geographic Reference System GARS - Global Area Reference System DMS - Degree Minute Second DDM - Degree Decimal Minute DD - Decimal Degree

conversion_mode

Conversion options for MGRS, UTM and GARS conversion types.

Note

Valid conversion modes for MGRS are: mgrsDefault - Default. Uses the spheroid from the given spatial reference.

mgrsNewStyle - Treats all spheroids as new, like WGS 1984. The 80 degree longitude falls into Zone 60.

mgrsOldStyle - Treats all spheroids as old, like Bessel 1841. The 180 degree longitude falls into Zone 60.

mgrsNewWith180InZone01 - Same as mgrsNewStyle except the 180 degree longitude falls into Zone 01

mgrsOldWith180InZone01 - Same as mgrsOldStyle except the 180 degree longitude falls into Zone 01

Note

Valid conversion modes for UTM are: utmDefault - Default. No options. utmNorthSouth - Uses north/south latitude indicators instead of zone numbers - Non-standard. Default is recommended

num_of_digits

The number of digits to output for each of the numerical portions in the string. The default value for num_of_digits varies depending on conversion_type.

rounding

If True, then numeric portions of the string are rounded to the nearest whole magnitude as specified by num_of_digits. Otherwise, numeric portions of the string are truncated. The rounding parameter applies only to conversion types MGRS, USNG and GeoRef. The default value is True.

addSpaces

If True, then spaces are added between components of the string. The addSpaces parameter applies only to conversion types MGRS, USNG and UTM. The default value for MGRS is False, while the default value for both USNG and UTM is True.

future

An optional Boolean. This operation determines if the job is run asynchronously or not.

trim_extend

arcgis.geometry.functions.trim_extend(spatial_ref, polylines, trim_extend_to, extend_how=0, gis=None, future=False)

The trim_extend function is performed on a Geometry service resource. This function trims or extends each Polyline specified in the input array, using the user-specified guide polylines.

Note

When trimming features, the part to the left of the oriented cutting line is preserved in the output, and the other part is discarded. An empty Polyline is added to the output array if the corresponding input polyline is neither cut nor extended.

Keys

Description

polylines

An array of Polyline objects to trim or extend

trim_extend_to

A Polyline that is used as a guide for trimming or extending input polylines.

extend_how

A flag that is used along with the trimExtend function.

0 - By default, an extension considers both ends of a path. The old ends remain, and new points are added to the extended ends. The new points have attributes that are extrapolated from adjacent existing segments.

1 - If an extension is performed at an end, relocate the end point to the new position instead of leaving the old point and adding a new point at the new position.

2 - If an extension is performed at an end, do not extrapolate the end-segment’s attributes for the new point. Instead, make its attributes the same as the current end. Incompatible with esriNoAttributes.

4 - If an extension is performed at an end, do not extrapolate the end-segment’s attributes for the new point. Instead, make its attributes empty. Incompatible with esriKeepAttributes.

8 - Do not extend the ‘from’ end of any path.

16 - Do not extend the ‘to’ end of any path.

spatial_ref

A SpatialReference of the input geometries Well-Known ID or JSON object

future

An optional Boolean. This operation determines if the job is run asynchronously or not.

>>> polylines_arr = trim_extends(polylines = [polyline1,polyline2, ...],
                                 trim_extend_to = polyline_trimmer
